Originally from Milan, Eataly he spent several years carrying an over-sized backpack to school, being bullied by his chain-smoker friends and growing his fabulous hair. He was chubby throughout middle school, wore sandals with socks and was made fun for his soft titties. At age 19 he moved to the U.S. in order to (escape his bullies), study art and film-making. Upon graduation from Ringling College of Art and Design, he moved to sunny California where he worked at Pixar and DreamWorks Animation Studios.
His Italian has deteriorated to the point that he can no longer order focaccia at his hometown panificio without causing a commotion.
He is often found doodling or otherwise painting.
